The A.R.T. process impacts the micro-structure of aluminum by utilizing three hydraulic rollers to apply pressure to form the inner rim area after the wheel has been casted. The rollers move down the barrel, applying pressures to stretch, compress, and form the entire wheel barrel, ultimately increasing the tensile strength and elongation properties.
The end product is a lighter, stronger wheel that has an increased load capacity and shock resistance over the traditional cast aluminum wheel. A.R.T. provides up to a 25% weight reduction compared to a traditional cast wheel. The M610 weights for 19″ sizes start at 21 lbs per wheel while the weights for 20″ sizes start at 22 lbs per wheel.
